School-Based Programs - MPS Adaptive Athletics

The school-based MPS Adaptive Athletics program is a cross-categorical, competition-based athletics program for MPS students between the ages of 6-21 with a disability including, but not limited to: 

  • Intellectual Disability (ID)
  • Orthopedic Impairment (OI)
  • Visual Impairment (VI)
  • Hearing Impairment (HI)
  • Other Health Impairment (OHI)
  • Autism (AUT) 

The program targets individuals who have difficulty participating in regular education athletics, as they need adaptations in time, equipment, rules, and/or specific events.  All Adaptive Athletics competitions are hosted at various MPS high schools and are held during the school day.  A typical tournament occurs between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
